2016 Performative Installation
Thickness planer, suction unit, furniture boards, key, invoice
280 x 500 x 500 cm
The installation "Lückweg 19" focuses on dealing with memory and the past. At the beginning of the chain of thought were the furniture boards that accumulated after a household clearance. Fine traces were visible on the material surfaces: Signs of everyday use that simultaneously carried information about habit of use, location and time. In the installation, the thickness planer removes a few millimetres from the surface. The removed material is sucked off and collected. The traces change their state of form, are irrevocably removed and compressed into an illegible state in the suction system.
